Fans began to notice that Brendan Fraser was popular. It was all due to one Brendan Fraser superfan and an odd hotel request.

Fandoms can be unpredictable. They have the power to revive characters who were thought dead and to restore glory to once-iconic movie stars.


Brendan Fraser was one of the most sought-after leading men in Hollywood in the ’90s.

After starring in Encino Man with Pauly Shore, Brendan’s big break came in 1992.


Brendan’s career took off after that point.

From 1992 to the end of the decade, Brendan starred in hit film after hit film. Audiences were blown away by his performance in The Mummy and he stole our hearts in Blast from the Past.


Fans began to see less and less of Brendan.

Brendan’s once hulking frame was beginning to take a toll on his years of performing physical stunts. He fell into a deep depression after his body broke down and his marriage fell apart.


Then in 2016, following quite a while of being consigned to the edge of superstar, Brendan started to paw his direction back.

Fans realized what they were missing after seeing Brendan in The Affair. They fell in love with Brendan again after he was cast in the movie.


Brendan’s career is flourishing again. He is ready to take on the world.

His fans are as well. Brendan Fraser’s is the more serious of the two.


A Fraser fan has gone viral after posting on the social networking site.

Fraser fans always make the same request when they stay in a hotel, and this Fraser fan explains how.


“For years I have been booking hotels with the ‘extra note/request’ option filled in of ‘Please put a picture of Brendan Fraser from the 1999 movie ‘The Mummy’ in the room.'”

After many years of disappointment, the hotel in Phoenix, AZ, stepped up to the plate and made their wish come true.


Not only that, but the hotel also responded to the post on the social networking site.

“We are so glad our team could help make your dream come true,” the reply from DoubleTreet Hilton’s official Twitter account read.


Brendan Fraser has trended on social networking sites for no reason at all before.

At this exact time last year, an army of Brendan’s fans began showering him with praise for the fact that he is awesome.


Some of the posts were debated.

I have to say that I’m inclined to agree with this take. If a 5000-year-old mummy started chasing me, I wouldn’t be calling Leo to save me.


Some chose to ruminate on the rarity of the trend on the micro-blogging site.

“Like, I’m imagining Brendan Fraser’s publicist calling him like “You’re trending on Twitter” and him going “Oh god, what did I do” and she says “Um…you’re trending because everyone loves you” and I hope that gives him a warm fuzzy feeling.” – Twitter @madlori
